Polishing the Visible B-17 fuselage half

Recommended Posts

So, I recently bought this, one of my "grail kits," for the extravagant sum of $19 at the Three Rivers IPMS show. I'm soliciting advice for polishing the clear fuselage half, and possible methods for coating it in Future (it's a very large piece, I know). Any suggestions?

For something that large I would just airbrush the future on.

For polishing I use Simichrome Polish with a soft cloth, if it has any deep scratches or scuffing I'll use Rubbing Compound first.

When I built mine I washed the plastic and air dried, wiped it down with a micro fiber rag, brushed on the Future, let cure for 2 days, buffed with a brand new diaper and finally did another coat of Future. Sounds more time consuming then it was and the model came out great!
